Clinic Speak is a resource for people with MS. It is an ongoing project by Professor Gavin Giovannoni as a development of his Clinic Speak blog posts on the Barts MS Research Blog.
It’s for people with MS, their families and clinicians. This website is a work in progress and we welcome your input to discover your needs.
We are starting with a couple of links, but over time we will test and improve these with valuable insights from you, our current readers. New updates will be posted on the Barts MS Research Blog. The progress and development of Clinic Speak will also be reviewed by the Barts MS Advisory Group every three months.
We believe that the key to a successful resource is through open development. We welcome comments on the readability, legibility of graphs, images, content, tone and anything else.
Please bear with us, we’re in it for the long run.
